Always thought the headlight arrangement ruins this engine, though I don't know what to replace it with.

It's far uglier in all-black, and especially with a single headlight. Yech.



Actual Warbaby. Note the anti-aircraft shield on the headlight and lack of side skirts. GS-6's had to be approved by the Wartime Production Board.

can we stop posting porn? its getting dumb


A lot of people come here to post stuff that isn't trains. It's inevitable. Mike and I usually knock it out pretty quickly, but we have our own lives and can't monitor this 24/7. On the upside, if you're able to text US phone numbers, sending a message to (512) 953-3619 will alert us to what's going on. This number is always posted at the top of the main page underneath the new thread form. Texting us really does wonders for the quality of the board because the porn/spam/whatnot isn't left up until one of us comes by and sees it by chance.

On a sidenote, lol for thinking that a Carmen Electra photoshoot was fetish porn.

This week in Canuckland: The CP TEC (Track evaluation) train was parked near my house. The sun was setting. I felt a burning need to get photos.


The weirdest thing like that I've ever seen was meeting a local that had an old EJ&E SD38 for power, freight, and an FRA passenger test and passenger car on the rear.


I have to say that is one ugly locomotive. But the old lightweight baggage car behind it looks interesting. I can just make out the old "Canadian Pacific" near the roof line, but I can't make out the word(s) below it near the bottom edge.

What's the history of 1chan and why did they kick trains off 4chan?


As far as I know there are still train threads on /n/. I just happened along this site on my adventure of every chan made and active. Welp, off to the next one


moot deleted the '/n/ (Trains)' board off 4chan back in ancient pre-historic dinosaur times (2004), so thatdog made his own trains board, with blackjack, and hookers. then after about 10 years the PHP rusted into dust and thatdog ran out of whale oil to keep it running, so the current owners took over with a vichan fork.

1chan was the first chan I went on.. irc I found it through a google image search around 2007(??). Up to that point i'd never heard of 4chan but found it when I started systematically searching 2chan, 3chan, etc hoping i'd find more train pix gold. I stopped going there in 2011. Stopped in for visit in 2016 for a few minutes and haven't gone back. I don't miss it.


'cause furries, my man. :(

Long time no see. I'm still around and riding them rails. Tho not as much as I used to, I have an apartment in southern California now. But its trackside and watching trains roll by day after day made me antsy and I just caught one on a whim. Anyways I'm in Longview WA and I know theres a lime that runs through here but can't remember which. I'll probably hitch hike out of here if I can't figure it out. Its cold and wet and have plenty of friends in either direction that'll house me. Pic from Roseville CA after getting off that train I caught on a whim.


Riding in winter takes some fucking stones. I'd head home and chill in the warm.


Be careful, you can slip easily. The ice makes it tough. Don't end up like strobe.


I only catch stopped trains! I'm more worried about the temperature. But also I've ridden from Portland OR to Bakersfield CA two years in a row arriving in CA on Christmas Eve both times while on my way to visit family. The coldest points always being from Oakridge OR to Klamath Falls OR, always get absolutely covered in snow there.


Also I ended up hitching out, and will hitch back to Portland to catch a southbound train from there, IM headed to LA, typically leaves around 4-6pm, gets to Eugene around 9-12, typically I sleep and wake up in Dunsmuir CA early morning, getting to Roseville around 4-6pm then finally arriving in Bakersfield around 3-4am usually but of course it varies. Only things I really hate about riding in winter is good and water freezing.
